Contemporary Hinduism

Contemporary Hinduism is a general category that seeks to examine Hinduism in relation to modernity, particularly with respect to questions about the place of religion in the public sphere, questions of social hierarchy and equality, and Hinduism in relation to globalisation, localisation, and glocalisation. Within this broad category research projects could deal with Hinduism and the plastic arts, Hinduism and politics, Hinduism and society, and Hinduism and literature.
